COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the palate this silky smooth ale is predominantly malty, with smoky, spicy and citrusy notes, and a long, lingering finish that is lightly tart and malty.

Editors note: Sold as both Corsendonk Christmas Ale and as Kings Blue in Norway.

Mrk brun farge med et tynt kremhvitt skumlag som henger p glasset. Lukter malt, alkohol og krydder. Medium kullsyre. Litt lite "julesmak", men god bitterhet i begynnelsen og sdme i ettersmaken.

Dark brown/red pour with an off-white head. Big sweet malty aromas with notes of nutmeg, dark fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor is malt forward with notes of plum and fig. Nutmeg comes back in the finish as well. Very tasty and easy to drink.

Bottle received for Christmas. Malty sweet aroma with a hint of spice. Large head but dissipated quickly. A little on the tart side taste wise. Sweeter finish. Pretty enjoyable .

commonmac (268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle received as a gift for Christmas. A deep burnt caramel color with almost unnoticeable head. Surprisingly little Christmas about this ale. Some slight spices (cloves and nutmeg) and sweetness. Mostly tart and dark fruit reminiscent of a standard Belgian. Overall a little bit of let down if you expect something along the lines of a holiday ale. An OK but not great option.

Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a soft tan heady not much lace. Aroma is very malty sweet with spices and hint of smoke. The flavor is also very sweet with fruity bread and malt notes with a lightly dusty spicy bittern finish. Feel is velvety, lively, and very nice. A little too sweet for every day drinking but a nice comforting treat.

Fles gedeeld met lachneger. Donkerbruin. Aroma is zoet net als de smaak. Echt winterbier. Ik mis wel wat body en complexiteit.

Bottled. My Hoppy New Year 2014 beer! Malty in aroma, hoppy and malty and really dry in taste. Not mind blowing, but very enjoyable. Alcohol noticeable, but warming, not aggressive. Malty and dry in finish.
